Disney Nature’s Born in China

Disney’s got a blockbuster list of movies coming out this year. From the highly anticipated retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast with the ever appropriately cast and talented Emma Watson to fan favorite Cars 3, one not to count out is Disneynature’s Born in China. I recently, as part of the invite-only Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, was privy to a preview of this amazing documentary as well participate in a Q&A with the director, Roy Conli. Anyone who knows me would not be surprised that I know little about my own homeland. Despite being Chinese, I was NOT […]

Trust Merck, Trusted by Professionals Since 1899 and Now You!

There was a time, long ago, before I was in the medical field that any medical talk would leave me flustered and feeling really stupid. I hated feeling like that and thus avoided any conversations that related to science or medicine and even avoiding doctors in general. Of course at some point in your life, you’ll need one and can’t avoid the conversation. Not understanding simple things when a doctor was talking to me and needing to have blind faith that they had my best interest at heart was scary for me. In part I blame my crazy need to […]

Holidays with Lakeshore Learning and Love!

The hustle and bustle of the holidays is upon us… some of us are definitely feeling the stress more than others! While I’m sure the kids are mostly looking forward to opening their gifts, our family has changed the conversation. Each night as we wind down for the evening, my family sits down to reflect on the meaning of these holidays. With all three kids now in school, I’m enjoying the time to engage their minds and inspire learning during the holidays. From talking about holiday traditions and meanings, opening their advent calendars to writing holiday cards to friends and […]

Our TOP 10 Gift Guide from Lakeshore Learning

This year, we’re doing things a little differently. I’ve gotten so many emails asking where our gift guide is and for every email asking, I’ve gotten 3 times as many pitches for inclusion in our annual gift guide. I could point you to the latest fads and toy that is flying off the shelves, you know them and I know them. This year I want your gifts and mine to be thoughtful. My kids are incredible fortunate, I’d even say spoiled to have more toys than any kid could wish for. Growing up, I didn’t have many toys at all. […]

Forget Orange, We’re Going Teal

Who doesn’t love Halloween. It’s a favorite in our house.  Having grown up in an anti-Halloween household, it’s been such a treat to enjoy this holiday with my children.  From the time they were wee tots, they’ve been dressed in costumes and gone trick or treating in their strollers, toddling and now running from house to house. Collecting the candies and treats were always so much fun, even if I didn’t always let them enjoy the fruits of their collecting. Once my older son was diagnosed with severe food allergies, I was sure Halloween was done. It was heartbreaking but […]

Getting Creative & Crafty with Lakeshore Learning!

The school year is in full swing and that means homework, book reports and projects all around! The 2 newest additions to our homework nook is the Arts & Crafts Supply Center and Crinkle-Cut Craft Scissors Center. I am completely in love with them both.  Having had them now, I think they should be a staple that every school family should have. I really don’t know how we lived without them before. Craft projects before involved separate visits to the store, sometimes multiple trips to make sure we got everything we needed. If you all know me, efficiency is a […]
